Lampard has urged Chelsea chiefs to sort new contracts for Abraham and TomoriGettyBoth Abraham and Tomori have received England call-ups owing to their sensational club form this season.
Talks are now thought to be underway regarding new deals for the pair – which would see the youngsters double their money – with Lampard hoping for a positive update.
When asked if he wanted the youngsters to stay at Stamford Bridge, Lampard revealed: “Of course, I do.
“That goes slightly out of my remit when they are dealing with the club.
“The club know I love the players, I brought them into the team this season.
“They are doing particularly well but I leave those conversations to the club to discuss contracts.
“But, of course, I want them to be here for a long time. That’s the conversation for me and the club I suppose.
“I made it clear that they are playing very well and I want them to stay.”
